    Some great looking websites here, I’m really liking “Fully illustrated”

  2. orly says:

    There is some really good stuff here!!! Thx for providing inspiration. I just revamped my site and would love to hear what you, the design community, thinks of my new look.

    • Tom says:

      Thanks Orly! Your new portfolio looks good, nice and clean. However, I’d add some more detail to the background, as that feels a little empty right now. Also I’m not sure about your font choice, it seems a little plain. (the font used in your billboard area).

  3. Aaron Moody says:

    Hey, thanks for including my portfolio in this list, however the version you have referenced is v1 – I’m now on v3 haha, but that’s ok.

    • Tom says:

      Haha whoops! Thanks for pointing that out Aaron. I’ve updated your image now :) . Btw, I’m LOVING v3 even more than the past versions, great job!

  4. MarkT says:

    Oh, these examples are just superb. Lovely use of layout, colour, lighting, … tonnes of stuff. Thanks for picking them out for us to look at (although it does make me feel crushingly inferior as I continue to learn the ropes of this gig).

    Dale Harris’ slideshow even cycles back or forward on mousewheel actions, which a) surprised and b) pleased me greatly. :)

    • Tom says:

      Thanks Mark! I know what you mean, these sites are definitely inspiring, if not a little overwhelming when trying to consider your own portfolio design.

  5. sanji says:

    wow! these collections are awesome, truly inspiring.. superb color and layout, Thank you for posting this one.

    • Tom says:

      Cheers Sanji! It’s the colors of these sites that draws me to them the most I think. Rather than using boring blocks of color, many of these sites seem to integrate their colors seamlessly via textures, patterns and lighting effects. Very impressive stuff.

  6. Eric Vasquez says:

    I agree with most of the other comments, I really love this collection of Portfolio Designs. They all have such cool layouts and different ways of presenting the information. You definitely get a sense of what the site does or what purpose it serves as soon as you get there. Solid post!

  7. Great little roundup, enjoyed browsing through ‘em. Thanks for the share!

  8. Brad Maver says:
